Sounds like a great day out Liri - lots of treasures there.  A peachy flowered saxifrage sounds gorgeous. Keep meaning to ask you which day you are going to Chelsea?  I am going to be there with my Dad and sisters on the Tuesday.

escaped the frost here, but the rest of the week looking dodgy.  All my seedlngs are now in the cold GH, being covered at night with propagator lids.  Think I may add a layer of fleece for the next few nights as an insurance policy.

Right, gotta go.....places to be, people to see and all that jazz

4 could be exochorda 'the bride" - will be able to tell better when the flowers open.  If it is, then when the flowers are over you end up with seed pods that look like little star anise.

The RHS has partner gardens, which let RHS members in free for certain months of the year.  If you search for "partner gardens" on the RHS website there is a list of all the gardens and the months they partcipate.

I always carry my RHS card round with me on the off-chance

Pulmonarias are lovely for early in the year - there is a white one called sissinghurst.  I have opal, which is a lovely pale blue - started flowering in January, and still going strong now.  The variegated leaves are nice when its not flowering too.
